Floss Friends Retreat

What happened to June? Before I can talk about July, I have to finish telling you about June. My PIC and I squeezed in one more stitching weekend. We attended the Floss Friends Retreat held in Waverly, IA.

It was held in a community room in their City Office building right in the heart of downtown Waverly. In fact, we were just a block away from Fiberworks, the needlework store in Waverly.

It was a great retreat - comfortable seating, great lighting, excellent food (we had some great lasagna one night made at the local hospital cafeteria!) Two local stitchers had hosted the event and they put in a ton of effort to ensure we all had a great time!

The highlight of the weekend was meeting Jacquelyn Fox from Waxing Moon Designs. She is a local designer, based in Osage, IA. We’re always up for meeting a cross stitch designer that we haven’t met before!

She brought a trunk show with of her designs…

And she designed a patriotic piece just for us!

We had a great time with old friends and new friends!

Before I sign off, let me share a couple photos of Griffin and Rosie. Griffin is our grandson. He was born at the end of May and is just a little over six weeks old now. In the last week or two his personality has really started to show. He loves to have his hands up!

And Rosie is our new lab. She is 13 weeks old. We decided that Lizzie needed a companion. They are getting along famously.


Have a great weekend! Keep on stitching!
